BLOCK colours

Brief preview of a project/collaboration; Clothsurgeon x House of Billiam. Will be sold in certain selected stores. It has been fairly difficult sourcing the perfect quality fabrics in the desired colours, and tones.

coming soon... Hopefully!!

Bargain pick up

After attending a show at Free Masons Hall, I wandered about the shops and came across a vintage store on Drury Lane. Initially caught my eye with various vintage Nike trainers in a glass cabinet. In amongst the cabinet was some real rarities. Jordan 1 deadstock, vintage blazer, vintage Jordan VI, VII.... it was very exciting I looked round then came across this lovely vintage Versace tie, with its signature print Medusa heads. More brilliantly it was in a bargain basket where everything in it was £5!

3 piece double breasted suit and i'm ready.

Inspiration for undercut...

... may have come from this image. French civillians shave a womens head as punishment for collaborating with the Germans (1944). A popular cut nowadays in the East End of London, im currently sporting one myself but without the curtains as I did have in my my more youthful years.

What goes around....

Natural wear and tear PT.2

The jeans are doing quite well on the legs of Bendy. Quite well meaning they are getting messed up rather quick which is the puropose of him wearing them none stop for 6 months. Saying that it is pretty hard to destruct a pair of quality Levi's.


Just for me

As I have been working very hard making nice things for other people I decided to do some overtime and make myself something pretty. Huge admirer of varsity jackets, I thought i'd make myself an all black one. With simple but quirky details. Two internal iPhone pockets, lamb nappa sleeves, cashmere wool body, thick wool ribbing, feather and tassel detail. Just waiting for my buttons to arrive.

This could spark a frenzy.

Always wanting something.

No words sorry.

Photoshoot at The Connaught Hotel, Mayfair.

Well Mayfair is quite an intimidating place, when you dont have a couple of Million in the bank! We went to The Connaught Hotel to do a mini shoot, of the new garments we have been working on. The surroundings were very English, decorated in rich mahogany and brass frames giving off the scent that Ron Burgundy is quite accustomed too. On arrival we saw Jodie Kidd and then later appeared Cat Deeley and 'the body' Elle McPherson. I soon realised it was not the place where you ask for a photo, that was definate un-cool thing to do, and plus I was more interested in the Leeds United game.

Thanks to Tinko the Polish Prince

Diptrics Showroom

Samples of House of Billiam hoodies and varsity jackets were recently sent to Japan, to the Diptrics showroom for buyers to come and view. Their beautiful showroom is set up at their premises in Aoyama, Tokyo's fashion centre. If you're eagle-eyed you may well spot a new House of Billiam garment. We'll give you an official look at that soon. It sat well amongst other labels such as Jeremy Scott, PAM, Adam Kimmel, Gourmet Shoes and Linda Farrow eyewear to name a few. They got a good review and we now await a huge order. :)

Fluff SB Party

The day of the party I was tad disappointed as I went to get myself some new kicks, but unfortunately they did not have my size. I do get very depressed when this happens. Anyway Nike Sportswear held the gathering later that day for the release of the Nike Fluff SB, in London. So I ventured down. Free beer. Free book and bumped into a few friends not seen in a while. Was a good event and was pretty tipsy by the time we left. Thanks to Nehjat for the invite and the brilliance of free things, few snaps from the get together:

Best things in Life are FREE!
